 Cyber Coverage

Privacy Liability (including Employee Privacy)  

The Privacy Liability insuring agreement in our policy goes beyond providing liability protection for the Insured against the unauthorized release of Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Protected Health Information (PHI), and corporate confidential information like most popular “Data Breach” policies. Rather, our policy provides true “Privacy” protection in that the definition of Privacy Breach includes violations of any rights to privacy (e.g., person’s right of publicity or disclosure of private information). Because information lost in every data breach may not fit State or Federal-specific definitions of PII or PHI, our policy helps to fill these potentially costly gaps.

Security Breach Response Coverage  

This 1st Party coverage reimburses an Insured for costs incurred in the event of a security breach of personal, non-public information of their customers or employees.

Security Liability

The Security Liability insuring agreement provides coverage for the Insured for allegations of a “Security Wrongful Act”, 

Multimedia Liability  

Defamation, libel, slander, emotional distress, invasion of the right to privacy, copyright and other forms of intellectual property infringement (patent excluded) in the course of the Insured’s communication of Media content in electronic (website, social media, etc.) or non-electronic forms


Cyber Extortion

Expense and payments to a harmful third party to avert potential damage threatened against the Insured such as the introduction of malicious code, system interruption, data corruption or destruction or dissemination of personal or confidential corporate information.

Business Income and Digital Asset Restoration

The Business Income and Digital Asset Restoration insuring agreement provides for lost earnings and expenses incurred because of a security compromise that leads to the failure or disruption of a computer system, or, an authorized third-party’s inability to access a computer system. Restoration costs to restore or recreate digital (not hardware) assets to their pre-loss state are provided for as well.

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS)

Merchants and service providers must adhere to certain goals and requirements in order to be “PCI Compliant,” and under specific agreements, may subject an Insured to an “assessment” for breach of such terms.
